YSL YOUTH LIBERATOR SERUM FOUNDATION

Tuesday, 10 December 2013



Here is what YSL have been saying about their new Youth liberator Serum Foundation!

This product is a combination of the technical expertise of YSL SKINSCIENCE committee and the innovation of Yves Saint Laurent colour team. It revives the skin's youthful brightness and enhances the complexion's natural colour tone. The skin looks smoother with a healthy glow. Dull zones are neutralised creating a more uniform complexion.

So I am sure you all have heard about this new foundation that YSL has come out with last month. The YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation is a hybrid of foundation, it combines some key ingredients that you would normally see in a serum with your everyday foundation. If you like me and like to wear your foundation on a day to day basis and feel guilty about not giving your skin a break, this is meant to make you feel a little bit better about it! I am not quite sure if it can life up to all the anti wrinkle claims but one thing is true. It is a wonderful foundation!!

This was a love at first sight ( or first try better) kind of affair. It comes in this very stylish glass bottle with a black lid and has a pump, making it ever so easy to use and not waist any product, mess free!!
I like to use one and a half pump, applying a little bit more on the areas where I need more coverage but if you haven't got problems with your skin, one pump would be more than enough as its really easy to blend into the skin.

One of the main things that I love about this foundation is that it's a medium coverage but it does not look heavy on my skin. Its like the best of both worlds, you get a flawless complexion and at the same time look natural! It also gives a nice glow without making you look greasy, even on my oily skin.

The only thing that I would say that is a bit of a shame, is the colour choices that it comes in. I was matched on a YSL counter and the lightest shade was to light on me and the shade that I bought in the end ( B30 Beige) is just a little bit to dark for me at this moment. I can still make it work but I wish they had a shade in between.
It last on me for about 5 hours, not the longest I have seen some other foundations can do but good enough for my oily skin and nothing a bit of powder can not sort out. It would last even longer on a dry or normal skin!

Overall I am really loving this foundation and I have to say its the best one yet!! I just love the finish this foundation gives and that its so easy to apply, it has made my morning routine pure bliss and I love how luxurious it feels to apply it on my face!!

Have you tried this foundation yet? I would love to know what you think about it!

    1. There is a shade lighter than the one I have. I am sure it will be ok if you are very fair. Or you could always mix in a lighter foundation to make it perfect for your skin.

    2. I'm going to get samples of the lighter one and this one and try them out for a few days, hopefully will be ok!

  6. LOVE YSL products - I've never used their foundations but from what you say, it's really worth the hefty price tag. Adding it to my Christmas wish list now :]

    1. I know its not the cheapest of foundation, but you don't need a lot to cover the whole face. So I think it will last me for at least 4 month.

  13. It sounds like a lovely product! I also have problems matching foundations to my skin colour - I'm very pale and I can never find one pale enough!

    1. It can be super hard if you are extreme pale, Mac and Bobbi Brown are well know for their awesome shade range if you are finding it though.

    1. I know its not always easy to justify so much money for a foundation, there are some good ones out their in the drugstore but in my opinion there is nothing quite like the YSL one.

  20. No I haven't but was thinking about giving it a go. I read another review somewhere and they raved about it too. Thought I might change it up. I have pretty fair skin but I always end up picking a slightly darker shade anyway hahaha!

    1. If you are very fair then try the palest shade. It was to light for me but might be a perfect match for you. I do hope that they will have some more shades soon.
